Review by Pat Stanton
The San Diego concert was entertaining and fun.
Same set list, including YBYB, which is really getting tired to me. There are so many quality songs in the Who catalogue I don't really understand why this one is performed nightly.
Pete was very chatty and charming all night. He and Roger tried to be on their best language behavior as there was a young girl on the rail by Pete. Roger rewarded her for enduring their language with a tambourine at the end.
Pete poked a little fun at millennials by saying that a millennial would be afraid to raise their hand in response to an age question for fear that they would be attacked by all the old people around them.
Roger sounded wonderful all night but at times he didn't seem to have his typical energy. His Love Reign sounded great until the end when he went low, then high, neither effectively. He then made a joke of it which was too bad as that is usually a real high point of the show. Loren's intro was lovely. Imagine a Man was beautiful as always.
WGFA was especially effective with Pete performing dynamically, lasting more than 6 1/2 minutes.
Katie continues to shine, in her Baba solo, in the beginning of Imagine a Man with the haunting solo, and along with Audrey in Behind Blue Eyes.
At the end of the show, Roger thanked Pete as usual and Pete jumped in to point to his bandmate across the stage, telling us all to Be Lucky in unison with Roger.
This was a good show, not one my favorites on this tour, but still a fun night for the band and audience alike.
